Instructions
1. Measure and mark each wine cork at approximately one-half inch with a rule and pencil. Mark all the way around the cork.

3. Paint the wooden picture frame with green paint. Allow the paint to dry.
4. Measure and cut the cardboard with a ruler and scissors so it is the same size as the picture frame.

7. In all the gaps where corks cannot fit, add hot glue. Place small beads into the gaps, pressing gently on the beads so they stick to the glue.
